According to the release notes, the 334.89 WHQL drivers have introduced fixes for certain games and applications, such as fixing low frame rate, frame drops and shuttering issues in Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut, losing ambient occlusion while sprinting in Half-Life 2 and providing 'Enable SLI' option in its control panel for GTX 460 in SLI. Another notable fix was for NVIDIA ShadowPlay, as the older drivers caused certain games to crash or lock up with 3-way/Quad SLI setups.

 

NVIDIA also pointed out certain issues with the newer WHQL drives, such as Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Warframe unable to use GPU PhysX acceleration on Maxwell GPUs with 32-bit operating systems, though NVIDIA also points out that Ubisoft will release a game patch in March for Assassin's Creed IV, whereas Digital Extreme would release a new patch very soon.
